This week's Five Questions With, features one of Jamaica's brightest, young ambassadors. She just made the country proud by showcasing the best of the island's culture on one of the biggest stages in the world. Her name is Khadijah Robinson. Robinson is still on cloud nine following last Saturday's spectacular display at the Miss World Finals in China, where she placed in the pageant's top five and was crowned Miss World Caribbean. Aside from the fact that she hails from the parish of St Elizabeth and is a physiotherapist by profession, there isn't much that is known about the 23-year old beauty.

All that is about to change, however, as we get up close and personal with her in this week's feature. Here is Five Questions With the newly minted Miss World Caribbean, Khadijah Robinson.

1. Describe yourself in three words.

Down to Earth.

2. What experience from the Miss World competition, has had the biggest impact on you?

The entire journey! Just being able to get to know different persons and cultures from places so far out of reach before coming here was amazing.

3. What is the most rewarding thing about being an ambassador for your country?

The most rewarding thing, I think, is being able to display my culture. I take great pride in everything Jamaican, and being able to show persons some of what it means to be Jamaican is a great honour.

4. You are a big advocate for self-love. What advice would you give to young people about loving and appreciating themselves?

You are the only person who can be you. Therefore, persons who pass remarks or throw their opinions at you are not qualified on the subject of YOU. Learn to love yourself for who you are, and to separate who you are from who people think you should be. Once you love you first, things will fall into place, and no one can make you uncomfortable in your own skin.

5. Where is your favourite chill spot on the island?

My mother's living room (lol).
